Aloha,

I'm searching for 2 weekend wristbands for friends who didn't get their tickets in time but that have a room at the Crowne Plaza. Please let me know if anyone has two for sale.

Mahalo!

So if they don't get tickets they have to be sequestered to their room all night?

Why don't you just uber home Tikidrifter? Not everyone lives in SD

I usually park my car close by so I have a place to put my purchases and store my rum. Then I uber back and forth, but never drink and drive. Friday and Saturday nights can go til 4 in the AM or later depending on how long you want it to go. Most parties usually run out of drinks by that time.

Yeah for serious it is pretty tough to find a quiet place in Crown Plaza. I don't think the quiet rooms are actually quiet. You can try to stay up until 4 and then try to sleep until the bands start... Or you can try to get sooo drunk that nothing can wake you. Everything is loud and it keeps getting louder as the weekend progresses. For the first timers, if you really do need your beauty sleep I would recommend an adjacent hotel or earplugs at least. Many room parties have loud bands all night and people are in the pool/hot tub constantly and are louder the drunker they get.

It is a great time but I like that I can get a $7 uber away from the craziness when I need to. It may be worth it to new people as well to grab a cheap hotel a few miles away for some escapism.

Oh ya, my brother and I are uber'ing for sure! I meant sleep schedule, like, should I plan on being at the hotel 'til 3AM, sleeping 'til 1PM, etc.
We just got the "evening" wrist bands, so we won't be arriving 'til whenever that admission tier opens up ... although we might come early because I guess stuff like Miss Tiki and the car show doesn't require wrist bands?

Yeah, that is precisely what I'm hoping to avoid!

Tiki Drifter - yes, you're allowed to be there all day. There are no separate daytime tickets. People just can't be on site in the evenings without a wristband.

If anyone is looking for a new SD mug while in town, Bar Kindred just got in their second edition mugs by Tikifarm. Kindred has a tiki night called Permanent Vacation every Thursday. You may have time for a drink there before Bali Hai

I was looking at the program, and is the theme mug already sold out for real?


Did the entire run get allocated for Deluxe and Cocktail passes?




in other news, LESS THAN 4 HOURS TO GO!!!!!!!!!

How's the parking situation for someone just coming to the marketplace on Saturday? Any suggestions? Is there enough parking at the hotel? I haven't been to Tiki Oasis AT ALL before, so I'm sticking my toe in the water.

I usually just go Saturday for the day. Parking gets tighter as the day progresses, if you get there by late morning you shouldn't have any problem

If you get there after 10am expect to walk quite a distance. If you are lucky, there may be spots left in the back field in the undeveloped parcel to the East of the hotel. Otherwise there's parking all down the side of Hotel Circle. I think I got there at 10:30 last year and parked beyond the baseball field way down at the end of the street past the Motel 6.

Anyone driving down from north of San Diego county tomorrow, beware that the 5 will be down to ONE LANE (southbound only) until Noon.

Cheers!!
